A.B.Montijo - 1896
A BALL OF GOLD. Another Good Producer In the Morongo Dlilrlet. A. B. Montijo is in the city from the Morongo dirlrict, and brought with him a ball of gold which he had taken out of 2300 pounds of ore from his claim, the Buena Vista, working it with an was-tra. He estimates that he waB unable to save more than half of the precious metal, and yet from that quantity of ore he has taken about $125 worth. The mine ia as yet but a prospect and the work iaonly intended as development, but it shows that it could be worked at a profit from the first. W. D. Wagner is associated with Montiio in the ownersb'p of the claim, which is about a raih ind a half from tho -Rose mine. It is the intention of the owners to take out several tons of the ore, and abipit to a imelter and learn by a working test what it is actually worth.
